A mix of old and new...

Not too awful  long ago, Andy and I were at my grandmama's house and she was cleaning out some artwork she had tucked away in closets.  While rummaging through her goods, I came across a few botanical bird prints that I just had to have (if she was willing to part with them).  The prints had been put away for long enough that she couldn't really place where they came from, so I am going to imagine that they are really legit and worth tons of money.  Regardless, I love having a bit of art from a VERY special lady in my casa. 

Here are just a couple of the prints in their new frames.  I love taking a clean-line, contemporary frame and pairing it with a little bit of old-school, vintage. 

Notice the reds and yellows in this one=perfect for our house!

A little bird-feeding-bird action in this one...

I really had no clue where I would put these in the house when I first framed them, but then I let them sit in the dining room for a bit and am really liking the idea of adding some art in there.  Maybe flanking the ZGallerie mirror?  When I get it figured out, I'll get back to you.

Thanks again, G-Mama!  There is nothing better than free art from one of my favorite people!
